Digital Art - Digital Painting/photographic Art
This painting is an ORIGINAL digital art work created on the computer from a reproduction photograph then hand-painted on a Wacom tablet using a variety of painting styles and digital mediums. It consists of 5 different layers of painting - beginning with an abstract oil, then an aged realistic oil paint, an Impressionist oil, a bristle brush thin impasto, and ending with color pencil drawing overlaid on the previous layers. Further refinement was accomplished in Photoshop with a number of filters and changes in layer opacity. (See longer explanation below of why this qualifies as an original even if it is based on an image in the public domain).This hand-painted digital creation is based on a public domain image taken by Gary Kramer of the US Fish and Wildlife Service.
There are 12 sub-species of bobcat, a member of the lynx family of wild cats, and they range over most of the western hemisphere from Mexico to Canada and throughout most of the United States. Far from endangered, this North American mammal has adapted to many different environments including forest, desert edges, urban edges, semi-desert and swamplands. The sub-species shown here is the eastern and Midwestern bobcat which is generally only about twice the size of a domestic cat. Other subspecies like the Canada lynx and bobcats that roam the hills and mountains of California and the northwest US are much larger. Generally speaking, bobcats hunt wild hares and rabbits but they will hunt anything from insects to deer. Prey selection depends on both habitat and season of the year.
The adult bobcat has few predators though the large golden eagle, cougars and gray wolves will attack and kill them and occasionally coyotes will prey on them as well. Bobcat kittens, however, are fair game for many predators and only a little over 50% survive to adulthood.

I am a western New York based artist with a passion for the sea and a deep love for the natural world around me. My paintings are sometimes based on images in the public domain or on elements from classic art work. Other paintings are based on original photographs. All are painted on a Wacom tablet using a variety of painting programs and filters and because the final creations are entirely digital in nature they are considered to be original art work not reproductions.
According to the International Association of Fine Art Digital Print Makers (IAFADP), "An original digital print is not based upon using original artwork outside of the computer. The artist may use elements as source materials, such as photographs, drawings or other appropriated images, but THE FINAL FORM OF THE WORK EXISTS ONLY IN THE COMPUTER AND AS THE FINAL PRINT OR AS AN EDITION OF PRINTS." Furthermore, as explained by George Whale and Naren Barfield in a speech to the IAFADP in 2001, "with an electronic pen (stylus), drawings and paintings can be created entirely on the computer using synthetic tools and materials, many of which have their own distinctive qualities." And according to ArtBusiness.com, there is a distinct difference in value between a print/scan of an original watercolor, painting or photograph "...as opposed to original digital works of art created by digital artists entirely or in part on computers which ARE considered to be unique." Similarly, the International Fine Print Dealers Association states, "The IFPDA defines an original print as a work of art on paper which has been conceived by the artist to be realized as a print, rather than as a reproduction of a work in another medium." This is exactly how I create my original works and each painting is the result of many layers of hand-painting in various styles (impasto, pen and ink, digital oils, etc.) then overlaid upon one another.
You can purchase quality traditional style fine art prints of these digital paintings, giclee canvas prints, acrylic and metallic prints by Lianne Schneider. They are beautiful and stylish decor for any wall in your home, office or lobby.

Please contact the artist, Lianne Schneider, directly if you purchase this image as a giclee print on canvas, framed or unframed. A signed and numbered Certificate of Authenticity is available for each canvas indicating title of the work, my name, date of creation, a thumbnail of the painting, the origin of original work if the painting is a derivative, the number of your print in the limited printing and a guarantee that the work will no longer be available to the public in a canvas format once a total of 25 canvas prints are sold from all potential vendors.
